The Beauty of Japan “和●美” presents the vibrant world of Japanese culture through traditional and contemporary performing arts. I have created  performance pieces that express Japan's sacred rituals, mythology, history, and festivals through dancing, singing and playing Japanese musical instruments such as Taiko (Japanese drumming), Koto (Japanese harp), and Fue (Bamboo flute).  By showcasing Japan's serenity, strength, vibrancy, and beauty through visual, auditory, and sensory experiences, this concert serves as an inspiration for others to explore and appreciate the richness of Japanese culture. These are performances that cannot be seen very often in North America.  This concert will appeal to those who are interested in Japan, or those who are unfamiliar with Japanese culture, or elderly Japanese Americans who cannot travel to Japan.  I hope the audience will experience the beauty of Japan and find comfort and inspiration in their hearts.


The City received 409 applications for the program. They were reviewed and scored by a diverse panel of artists as well as local community members. They also were reviewed by the Sacramento Arts, Culture and Creative Economy commission.​ Rieko was selected one of 45 local artists to participate in its one-year Seeding Creativity grant program.


Rieko was selected one of 45 local artists!

Project: Rieko was inspired by Taiko and traditional Japanese dance and started searching for her artistic roots through traditional Japanese performance arts. She will produce a concert based on Japanese traditional and contemporary Taiko and Dance performance in 2023.
